Who said that we must wait for February to celebrate love and feel the romantic air? It may only be December, but our favorite Kapamilya loveteams and couples have already filled us with kilig vibes as they graced ABS-CBN Christmas Special 2022 and even sang along to the classic Christmas songs of OPM icon Jose Mari Chan.
We were indeed treated to a fantastic musical number featuring Philippines’ very own Christmas ambassador Jose Mari Chan, as he commenced his set with the Kapamilya stars by serenading us with “A Christmas Song For You,” which was followed by Ogie and Regine’s duet of “Perfect Christmas”.
Mars Ravelo’s Darna stars Joshua Garcia, Janella Salvador, and Jane De Leon, together with Kaori Oinuma, Jeremiah Lisbo, and JC Alcantara and KD Estrada and Alexa Ilacad, sang the legendary singer-songwriter’s “Let Love Be The Gift.” Real-and-reel sweethearts Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte sashayed on the stage hand-in-hand as they performed “A Wish Upon A Star”.
Aside from the said pairs, the exciting team-ups of 2023 were also introduced, namely, Jayda Avanzado and Aljon Mendoza, Ralph Malibunas and Gail Banawis, Kobie Brown and Andi Abaya, Carlo Aquino and Charlie Dizon, Francine Diaz and Seth Fedelin, and Paulo Avelino and Janine. They made us kilig through their duets of “Christmas Anyway”.
Stars of upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye Linlang Kim Chiu, Paulo Avelino, and JM de Guzman, along with Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano joined forces to serenade us with “Christmas In Our Hearts”. Jose Mari Chan, Ogie, Regine, and the other loveteams returned onstage and sang the iconic Yuletide song altogether.
Indeed, kilig is in the air for all of us, Kapamilya!
